Dial Tool Industries began its tradition of excellence in 1955. Our founder Gregory “Leo” Pagliuzza had a goal; to provide complete manufacturing services and efficient, cost-effective tool and die services. He achieved that goal, and today, over a half a century later, we continue to uphold it.
Dial Tool is a family-owned business flourishing under the leadership of Leo’s sons Steve and Mario. Leo started the company in 900 square feet of space. Today, we have established Dial Tool as a premier metal stamper and manufacturer, and continue to thrive in our 40,000 square foot facility in Addison, Illinois.
What establishes Dial Tool as a leader in the industry is our belief in building long-term relationships with our customers. To that end, we strive to exceed and surpass our customers’ expectations on every job. We’re proud to be a full-service premier metal manufacturer.
We work with our customers from concept to completion. Our engineers can help develop ideas that work. With our state-of-the-art technology and dedication to quality, Dial Tool Industries is the first choice in premier metal manufacturers.
